  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    This is impossible as there are no young players that exist outside of the Project Brave approved academies - none at all. We should look at having our reserves made up with old players - 40yrs plus , there's loads of them playing 5s around the district, some pretty tasty. By the way if Craig Campbell is reading this it's a joke - please don't make this your new strategy.

    That Little Mix money sure is going a long way. Great stewardship again , I wonder what's next.
  3. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Hooray - another new team ! We now funnily enough have achieved consistency with the fact that we change the squad all the time. How did we get to be stuck in this vortex?
  4. That must've been some Little Mix concert - how much did we actually make ? I thought we just rented the stadium out these days rather than sharing in the profits (losses) like we got burned with previously. (BTW I am not suggesting 450k is valid)
  5. Took the liberty of looking up "soulless" in the english dictionary to better understand the accusation and my comments in light blue below: soulless /ˈsəʊllɪs/ adjective (especially of a place) lacking character and individuality. "she found the apartment beautiful but soulless" synonyms: characterless, featureless, bland, dull, colourless, dreary, drab, uninspiring, unremarkable, unexceptional, undistinguished, unmemorable, grey, anaemic, insipid; In terms of a place ,and in reference to Dingwall, my memories would absolutely reflect this description although "bland" is a little harsh. I did enjoy my trips to Dingwall but this had a lot to do with much wine and a cheeseboard on the train up. Also I really enjoyed the Black Isle Show when I went but that's obviously not football related. In terms of stadia the Ross Co ground looks a bit drab & colourless but that does not necessarily make it bland or soulless - ironically this has been a statement made about the Falkirk Stadium (bland name) quite a bit. Brockville had loads of character. (of an activity) tedious and uninspiring. "soulless, non-productive work" synonyms: boring, dull, deadly dull, tedious, dreary, routine, humdrum, ho-hum, tiresome, wearisome, uninteresting, uninspiring, unexciting, soul-destroying, mind-numbing, lifeless, dry : Relating this specifically to the Ross County football club I'd imagine being at the top of the league all season would not be too dull and probably a bit exciting. Having not seen much of the Staggies I can't comment further but watching Falkirk this season when I can it's been all of those things listed above at some point. Needs must now for Ray so I don't blame him and he is doing a rather good job considering. lacking or suggesting the lack of human feelings and qualities. "two soulless black eyes were watching her" Again I find it hard to comment here not knowing the human feelings of any of the Ross Co fans and the majority of Falkirk fans or the colour of their eyes , soulless or other. All I will add if I may is a quote from James (sorry don't know any Aristotle) "there's only one human race , many faces - everybody belongs here". To conclude I think "soulless" is a bit unfair but not without some basis. Incidentally - how do you turn a duck into a soul singer? Put it in the microwave until it's Bill Withers.
  6. Real fans don't moan about the driving conditions.

    Most likely. Wonder how our accounts will look in regards to players & management spend. I'd imagine our budget was way behind those two but I'd guess we will have totally blown that budget to smithereens for this season. S'pose I was just trying to highlight, as if it's needed, how much of the fans' money this BOD have splurged away. I know in the end it was what was required but seemingly no one is held accountable. Come the revolution.

    Whilst there is no doubt McGregor is covering their losses & essentially bankrolling them, apparently they slashed their player budget by half this season. https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/1508880/staggies-budget-more-than-halved-ahead-of-championship-campaign/ With the absolute clusterfuck this season - signing a new team, paying off that new team, paying off the old management team (and the one before), recruiting a new management team with associated fines , signing another new team - I wonder what the gap is now between ourselves and Ross County in terms of money spent on players & management this season. We might even have overtaken them.

    Yes true but don't be distracted the by finer details. Like 16,403km for instance.

    At least this chap was at the match. You watched it on TV at a pub just a mile away. #realfan
  11. Sorry , I keep forgetting it's the wee team. It's "United" isn't it? The only thing I really remember about Dundee is that Jerry Sadowitz said the people of Dundee pour boiling water through their hair to make Pot Noodle.
  12. The defensive marking at both Thistle goals was pleasingly dreadful - schoolboy stuff. Not one Dundee defender anywhere near either goalscorer. I thought Nielson was a defender once?

    My son is named after him - that's how much he means to me. Played in the same team as him as well in a 5 a side tournament The Holy Trinity of Bairns will always be Stainrod, Crunchie, Latapy.
  14. "Not too bad"?? It's a bloody miracle mate!!
